Newcastle manager Alan Pardew has been charged by the FA with improper conduct.

It is after comments made ahead of the Magpies' win over Sunderland on 20th August regarding how Howard Webb would treat Joey Barton.

Pardew said: "In a gameplan, Joey would get a mention so the ref needs to make sure he referees from a completely neutral point of view."

The Toon beat Sunderland 1-0, in a game that saw seven yellow cards, including a sending off for Black Cats full-back Phil Bardsley.

Barton picked up a yellow card for dissent in the second half.

The FA introduced new rules this year preventing managers from speaking about match officials before a fixture.

Tony Pulis praised Howard Webb ahead of Stoke's FA Cup semi-final against Bolton last season, but was warned about his future conduct.

Pardew has until 4pm on 5th September to respond to his charge.
